I didn't find any convincing answer to this question. The fact is that it is very troublesome to copy large chunck of files not seing any feedback on whether the operation is taking place or not. BTW I found this – under Gnome – if you close the Files manager, and a notification appears telling you an operation is pending. If you use the « show details » the file manager reappears with an additional icon in the menu bar. This icon looks like a pie. If you click on it, you can see the progress bar. This is really not very convenient, and I don't understand why not display the progress bar directly.

I must correct my first answer. It seems the icon appears automatically in the menu bar as soon as the copy is launched. Just clicking on it opens the progress bar widget.
